Invasion of Europe news….
One of the tens of thousands of Muslim migrants Germany ‘welcomed’ in recent months and years went on a hacking and slashing attack on a German train injuring many yesterday. Fortunately no one was killed but three are in serious condition the UK Telegraph reports. The Telegraph also reports that ISIL is claiming that he worked (past tense since the police killed him) for them.
The Islamic State said they were infiltrating the refugee stream, so why don’t we believe them?
And, btw, there are no guns in this story to blame because Germany severely limits gun ownership. The next best thing—knives and axes!
Islamic State has claimed an Afghan teenager who attacked passengers on a train in Germany with an axe on Monday night as one of its ‘fighters’.
Earlier on Tuesday, the interior minister said a hand-drawn Isil flag was found in the room of the 17-year-old, whose attack left three seriously injured.
Police shot dead the suspect as he attempted to flee the scene. The assault in Wurzburg was the latest suspected terror attack to shock Europe following the atrocity in Nice last Thursday.
Isil’s online Amaq news agency released a statement claiming the attack.
“The perpetrator of the stabbing attack in Germany was one of the fighters of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in answer to the calls to target the countries of the coalition fighting the Islamic State,” the statement said.
“It is quite probable that this was an Islamist attack,” said a ministry spokesman on Monday, adding that the attacker had apparently shouted “Allahu akbar” (God is greatest) as he stabbed people.
The attacker was said to have been carrying “weapons for slashing and cutting”, according to German media reports, including an axe.
Joachim Herrmann, the interior minister of Bavaria state, said the assailant had arrived as an unaccompanied minor in Germany and had lived at first in a shelter and then more recently with a foster family in nearby Ochsenfurt.
So how many German families have the next slasher and hacker living in their spare bedrooms?
